Itinerary:

Arrival Day

 

Arrival at Iceland Bike Farm from 17.00 and welcoming dinner at your accommodation in Grjóthóll Glamping. Grjóthóll means Rocky hill and is basically located in the middle of nowhere. Glamping, also known as glamorous camping, is where you will spend your sleep the next two nights, in a spacious Tipi tent with comfortable beds and cozy decoration.

Hot water showers and restrooms are only few steps away from the tents. Right next to the tents is an old barn and sheep house, renovated to a glampers chill and dine area. After dinner it is perfect to explore the surroundings and enjoy the bright summer night.

Day 1: Mt. Coldback with a Cave twist

After a wholesome breakfast at the glamping it is time to get the bikes ready to hit the trails.

We start the day with a nice warm up trail just to get the feeling of what is to become. After the warm up, we jump into our super jeep and head into the mountains on a historical terrain through the lava fields of Laki Lava flow from 1783 and even explore one of its many hidden caves.

“Jæja” is the only Icelandic word you need to know, it has at least 13 different meanings but in this case it means let´s GO! And off we go through the rough highland landscape with some climbing involved but you will forget about that as soon as you reach the top of mountain Kaldbakur (Mt. Coldback) located right in our backyard.

We drop down a smooth, natural singletrack that has been formed by the sheep for centuries surrounded by deep canyons and high waterfalls. This flowy

single-track leads us to our Glamping lodge where a nice meal and some ice cold refreshments will be waiting for us.

Day 2:  "Fagrifoss" Single Track

Today starts with a super jeep shuttle up by the “famous” Fjaðrárgljúfur, through a historical terrain way up to the mountains.

After we enter our land, we prep our bikes and start the ride by taking in some of the beauty that Fagrifoss (Beauty waterfall) has to offer before we start the epic single track ahead!

The first part is a moderate uphill section following both single track (sheep tracks), and the open wild nature. You know what they say about things going up… must come down eventually and this trail does definitely not brake the law of gravity!

With a variety of technical but sweet flow of single-track, we ride in the footsteps of vikings that travelled these same tracks thousands of years ago. The hardest thing about having people visiting our farm, is to say good bye… but that´s only until next time!

We Are Looking Forward Riding With You!
